Hoppe: A libertarian society would be significantly
more prosperous and wealthy and this would certainly help both low and
high culture. But a free society — a society without taxes and
tax-subsidies and without so-called “intellectual property rights” —
would produce a verydifferent culture, with a very different set of products, producers, stars, and failures.
You see a causal link between a society’s form of government
and its moral values and social development. Do you see a similar link
between type of government and aesthetic standards and quality of art
Hoppe: Yes I do. Democratic state government systematically promotes egalitarianism and relativism.
